It doesn't look right to me. The letter also doesn't seem to be in the style or manner of anything Tolkien would write. Personally, real or fake, I find this to be a very unattractive piece. The paper is very grubby, the signature is sloppy, and the content does not seem to have any relevance.

The paperback book, in my opinion, is an obvious fake and a disgrace.

The letter is of the same rubbishy type that we've seen lately - not so sure about the book, but I wouldn't trust the signature unless I knew a lot more about the provenance.

I certainly won't be bidding for either item.

"The Tolkien Estate granted me permission to set a poem from The Lord of the Rings. It's a song called 'Oliphant' about mythical battle elephants. HarperCollins will be promoting and selling it in the New Year. A project with complete artistic licence and elephants; it couldn't be better."
